read this. very amusing

While the english say 'it is greek to me' the greek say it is chinese to me.In the past me personally used this phrase quite often any time when a student could not understand the meaning of my words even in greek.we also say to friends or our children the same phrase if they pretend that they do not understand the meaning of our words.
the german language is considered a pretty difficult language comparing to the french ,italian or english .In reality german is much easier than chinese.
only a person with passion for China can insist on learning the chinese language .Of oucrse when you study in China things are much easier.

I agree with the above but the chinese language is fascinating.At least for me.

It seemed like 7,000 hurdles and that was just to learn PY{:soso_e101:}

Keep up your leaning{:soso_e181:}

I can speak Chinese better and better every day, but Nanning has so many languages, that speaking Mandarin is not enough.

My friends speak Nanning Bai Hua (like Cantonese) most of the time, and though I can understand a little of what they are taking about (mostly through body language), I wish they would speak Mandarin!

I can't write chinese, but I can send text messages and read most text messages my friends send to me, but I can't read books or newspapers. I wish I had more time to practice my writing and reading, but until someone invents the 36 hour day, I have no chance!
